Easy Apple Pie Recipe From Scratch

Ingredients

  • 1 double pie crust recipe (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5-6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (Granny Smith or Honeycrisp work well)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Roll out the bottom crust and place it in a 9-inch pie plate. Trim the edges, leaving a 1/2-inch overhang.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour to form a paste. Add water, white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to low and let simmer.
  4. Place the sliced apples in the pie plate. Pour the sugar mixture over the apples.
  5. Roll out the top crust and place it over the apples. Trim the edges and crimp to seal. Cut several slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  6. Bake the pie for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F (190°C) and continue baking for an additional 30-40 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown.
  7. Allow the pie to cool before serving. Serve with vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat!
